Everybody knows I earned them. It was all over Voat and that’s why some people, many many people, say it was shut down.

A modest man would have settled for 1990 upvotes!

1990 is not enough when we have literally hundreds of thousands and everybody knows it

I’m giving me all the votes. Sorry about that.

Hope you are well, George, it’s really great to see you here and to see everyone else too.

I’ve spent the last year or so concentrating on my health and guitar theory. The theory has really made a difference to my playing enjoyment and how much I practice everyday. I feel like I avanced more in the last year than I did in the previous 17 of playing :)

You only need to spare me 11,780 of them please m8.

What sort of theory have you been studying? I think I was lucky to have studied theory right off the bat as a child. And then unlucky that I figured what I had learned was good enough and lost interest in learning more!

We missed you. Many insults were hurled in my direction.

I started off with the pentatonic scale positions then learned diatonic, then modes and circles of fifths, arpeggios etc and I finally understood relative major/minor and how they related.

Right now I’m learning to transpose (I think that was the word, maybe it was transcribe) and having a go at learning how to read music, not that I’ll really need to know that :)

I only played chords in the past, and only songs I’d spent a lot of time learning, now I can play along to just about anything I hear on the radio - stuff I’ve never even heard before - I can’t believe it’s me sometimes :)

I missed you and all the other mad buggers and was sorry to read of voats demise. I hope putts finds something to keep him busy that it doesn’t drive him as crazy as voat did.

voats demise. I hope putts finds something to keep him busy that it doesn’t drive him as crazy as voat did.

I was happy to congratulate him on giving himself such a wonderful Christmas present.

Great to hear about your guitar progress! It is absolutely a lot more fun to be able to dive in and play along. I’m proud of you, mick!

Nadesh mentioned that she met you irl. I love how SBBH brought a whole lot of people from all over the world together and some of you even met! Next thing I’ll be hearing is two of them marry or something…

I’ve always found the internet to be a very impersonal place but Voat was different and it’s the only place on the internet that made me feel close to other people despite the huge distances between us all.

Excuse the wall of text today, been a while since I saw you :)

That is a true story! Deshy has met some other goats as well, I believe. I haven’t been this close to online strangers since almost never, maybe comparable with when I used to extensively travel… Certainly never with this many folks.

You concocted quite a bizarre lump of folk.
